PRINCETON, NJ - The Princeton Musuem, located on the campus of Princeton University, will present "Cezanne and the Modern Masterpieces of Eutopean Art from the Pearlman Collection" from September 19, 2015 to January 3, 2016. One of the finest collections of works to be held by a single family, the Henry and Rose Pearlman Collection has not toured in its entirety since 1974, when it was placed on long-term loan at the Princeton University Art Museum and where it has remained ever since.  This major exhibition will present Impressionist and Post-Impressionist masterpieces from the Pearlman Collection and will feature paintings and sculptures by artists who were transformative members of the avant-garde of their day. 

A rare opportunity for audiences in four countries to discover lesser-known masterworks from beloved artists including Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, and Amedeo Modigliani, as well as an extraordinary collection of magisterial watercolors, oil paintings, and drawings by Paul Cézanne, this exhibition will offer insights not only into the development of Impressionism and Post Impressionism, but into the history of collecting avant-garde art in the United States.  A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

Cézanne and the Modern: Masterpieces of European Art from the Pearlman Collection has been organized by the Princeton University Art Museum in cooperation with the Henry and Rose Pearlman Foundation.

The exhibition has been made possible, in part, by presenting sponsor Neiman Marcus.
